    Pros

    OHSU has benefits and many reasons to work here.

    Cons

    Thank Goodness for AFSCME at OHSU however since the Union has to protect employees' wages and benefits. Without a Union, OHSU would pay below scale and still demand excellence in all areas of Customer Service for a low, bargain-basement price

    Advice to Management

    Be nice to your staff. Tell them you appreciate them. We are colleagues of yours. Thank you.

    Pros

    Top to bottom is filled with great people. Lots of support for career advancement from faculty, even if it is not within the same department or even the same company. Work-life balance is excellent. I have no real complaints about working here.

    Cons

    Commute can be irritating with the limited parking situation. Compensation is decent but not great. Isolated on the hill so options for lunch are limited.

    Advice to Management

    I last worked there a year ago, but I hope nothing has changed. It was a great place to work and I went into work happy and stress-free for nearly 4 years.

    Pros

    well designed organization in terms of company policies and benefits! OHSU is very positively helping its employees to build their career there.

    Cons

    Not that I can think of!

    Housing program can be much improved, which surely can make OHSU be more attractive for great people to apply jobs there.

    Pros

    Casey Eye Institute was a great place to work: administrators who lead from behind rather than leading from the front; managers who balance revenue generating with being compassionate to their patients and employees; doctors who have patients that come from around the world to specifically receive care at Casey Eye and medical and admin staff who are the fulcrum of the institute.

    Cons

    Not enough physical space - Casey needs real estate to expand and it may not happen for a while

    Advice to Management

    Take calculated chances to expand the Institute

    Pros

    One of the funnest, most rewarding experiences I have ever had. The atmosphere of the setting and heavy reliance on Behavioral Health staff demonstrates the agency's and the medical providers value of helping the clientele

    Cons

    Lots of patriarchal beliefs among medical providers - pretty sure this is standard in medical settings.

    Pros

    Learned a lot of new skills in the cancer sequencing field.

    Cons

    Postdocs have salaries set by the NIH, no retirement, and only 2 weeks of vacation.

    Advice to Management

    Needs paid maternity leave like the grad students have.
